    Blummin ouch

    So after a sunny gentle start to Sunday morning the wind picked up and became cool and showery so at 3pm I thought I’d bring my girls in. As I walked up to their field some teenagers were shouting for their ponies to come to them in a paddock one removed from mine. My mares thought the girls...

    My stable isnt empty anymore....

    Some of you may remember my account of my mares illness and death at Easter and I was asked to keep you informed of my horse buying progress. As I do not write in as entertaining fashion as many others on here I kept quiet but often wanted to chip in my experiences when others wrote of their...

    Wish all days could be like this...

    I woke to wet ground as rain stopped at 7 this morning - autumn mist rolled down the hills and I went to yard thinking mare would be too wet to ride early on...but somehow the mud and wet were not on saddle or girth areas so a quick tidy up and a friend and I went to ride out. Oh my goodness...

And it was such a perfect day to ride - warm, still, damp ground underfoot - no tractors...
